ALIAS Chamber Ensemble has been selected to join the Music Makes Us Online® Hub: a listing of professional musicians and organizations, vetted by a selection panel, which will enhance teaching and learning opportunities for students and teachers in Metro Nashville Schools. A joint effort by Nashville Metro Public Schools and Mayor Karl Dean, Music Makes Us® focuses on music literacy and student participation, with a contemporary curriculum that embraces new technologies and reflects a diverse musical landscape.
One of 20 artists selected, ALIAS will introduce students to the process of composing brand new, innovative music pieces. The ensemble will perform a Mozart String Quartet as well as pieces composed by ALIAS members such as “Yo Yo Joe” written by Matt Walker and “String Quartet” by Chris Farrell. Students will also have the opportunity to create their own masterpiece through an impromptu, interactive composition process led by Chris Farrell.
